Hey Fam,

2 things we would like to share with you this evening.

This afternoon a lovely gentleman who is a vegan came to visit our farm to buy a dozen eggs for his pregnant wife who is craving them (know the feeling). This is quite the compliment when you think about the fact the 2 camps are opposed, and I think speaks highly of our practices.

Secondly, have a read in the comments below. This repost from this beautiful farming family are friends of ours.
We met them at the Joel Salatin workshop in 2015 and share similar journeys. Sometimes what we show on facebook is not the full picture (pretty much all social media). The highs make the lows worth it and every dozen eggs we sell is one less sold to the industrial food system.

Storytime is on as usual at 10.30am tomorrow and we’ve got three beautiful and colourful books to read! Upside Down Sid, Tropical Terry and Ping vs Pong will keep all little and big humans amused and entertained! We’ll follow with our usual singing and dancing which has been getting more and more impressive each week!

Keep your ears and eyes peeled for a very special announcement about new storytime adventures - those of you who would like to attend are unable to come on Thursdays, we’ve got some good news for you!

A lovely way to start tonight's dinner with a nice glass of Mt Alexander Shiraz or Riesling #runrabbitruncastlemaine #cafe #function #castlemaine #mountalexanderwinery #dinner #functionspace

Last week was rough. Really rough. The starter button on the new (old) tractor fell off in the paddock and is now stuck mid paddock waiting until the mechanic can bring a new one. But he is very busy with his own jobs and life so it may take a while. So we are bucketing feed. Lots of it to feed the chooks until he can make it.
In the midst of it all, I got a call from the another local egg producer. She needed some egg cartons to pack eggs for the markets this weekend. Her voice was croaky. I asked if she was ok. The answer was "the kids have been sick and now I have it, we are behind". I have been in that position and it is hard, damn hard. Crates of eggs to box with an expiry date ticking and you are not well. "I said bring your eggs and I will help you wash and pack them and get you ready for the market. I will sell you some of my cartons". This is the same market we sell our eggs at, side by side. So I put my eggs aside and we worked together for four hours getting everything sorted while the kids played.
In a week that has been rough and lonely, the bubble of warmth, friendship and comradeship was lovely. Another person who knew how hard the egg game can be at times, and the challenges of balancing family and farming.
Neither of us is competitive and we both have a huge amount of respect for each other. Even when things are tough they are always tougher for someone else and there is always room for kindness.
Now I better go pack some of my own eggs so we can make it the markets! See you at Wesley Hill Markets and the Lancefield & District Farmers’ Markets this Saturday peeps.
